Today is a major legislative Constitutional deadline in the State Capitol.  Commonly known as the “First House Deadline,” officially called, “House of Origin Deadline,” it marks the point in the two year legislative session by which every bill must have made it through the chamber in which it was introduced.  The last two weeks saw many bills major bills – many of them opposed by the business community — muster enough votes to pass.  However, we also had some success defeating bills we oppose and scores will now be tagged as “dead.”

 The process starts again in with policy committees cranking up next week.  The Legislative Session  goes throughout the summer and all bills must be dealt with prior to Final Recess adjournment on August 31.
